  • Staff are absolute connoisseurs, the environmental conditions inside the shop are perfect for cheese and the smell is indescribable - exceptional!
  • I like this place a lot. For starters it's seconds from London Bridge station, where I have the misfortune of commuting to weekly. It's an almost entirely British fromagier, the only European cheese I saw was Parmesan, and many varieties and ages of it. I lean towards calling the Britishness a specialisation rather than a limitation, because they truly excel in finding exceptional British cheeses. It's also clear that the shop are keen to promote traditional cheese making, for example preferring Stichelton to 'typical' Stilton - Stichelton is the old recipe for Stilton, which uses unpasteurised milk. Also traditional animal rennet is preferred. I would say this is a matter of preference, but it is generally considered that animal rennet produces superior results. The service is top notch, they're extremely knowledgeable and very generous with their samples. Shopping here is an extremely pleasant experience. Is it expensive? Yeah, compared to Waitrose or any of the plethora of stalls in the adjacent borough market, it is expensive, but you get so much more at Neals Yard. Overall, 9/10. Only 4 stars though, I round towards 3.
  • Excellent selection of British and Irish cheese. Staff is extremely professional, nice and passionate about their job. Really enjoyed the experience.
  • Cheese heaven. Smiley service, and not as pricy as you'd expect.
  • Fabulous selection, with friendly and informed staff who go above and beyond to ensure you leave happy. Legend-dairy!

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
